Leafy greens, eggs, and tuna fish top the list of the 10 "riskiest" foods regulated by the FDA, according to a new report by the Centers for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
Taken together, these foods have accounted for nearly a thousand disease outbreaks in the U.S. since 1990, according to Sarah Klein, food safety attorney for CSPI.
Leafy greens accounted for 363 outbreaks and 13,568 cases of illness since 1990, according to the study, which comes from an analysis of CSPI's Outbreak Alert database, which culls data from CDC reports.
Eggs were responsible for 352 outbreaks and 11,163 illnesses since 1990, 95% of which were attributable to Salmonella.
In 86% of cases, the culprit was scombrotoxin, commonly found in fresh and raw tuna, although the CDC does not distinguish between fresh, canned, and raw fish in its reporting.
